  • 17 in Flintshire

  • 11 in Denbighshire
  • 10 in Gwynedd 
  • 9 on Anglesey

Two more suspected coronavirus related deaths were confirmed in North Wales, taking the region's total to 443. 

Across Wales as a whole, 1,324 new cases were confirmed in the last day - with 16 people who had tested positive for coronavirus having sadly died. 

A total of 14,518 coronavirus tests were carried out in Wales yesterday, as the country's total number of tests passes 1 million. 

Dr Christopher Williams, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Public Health Wales is reminding people that fire-break restrictions came into effect in Wales at 6pm on Friday 23 October, and will last until the start of Monday 9 November.  

“We urge the public to stick to the new rules, which are vital to help us regain control of the virus, to protect the NHS, and save lives.

“Although national and local measures have made a difference, further action is now needed.  Cases continue to rise in Wales, hospital admissions are increasing, including those into critical care, and sadly so are the numbers of people dying from the virus.  

“Under the rules, people must stay at home, except for very limited purposes.  They must not visit other households or meet other people they do not live with."
